With this method, you can make a batch of concentrated coffee to make individual iced cups of coffee for the next several days. It's perfect for when you need a quick fix.
Step 1: Get the Stuff
1/2 pound of coffee ground for a French press
12 cup French press. I'm using Bodum's 12 cup press.
The 12 cups here are really 4-ounce cups. So the 12 "cups" is really the equivalent of 6 cups.
Take out the strainer and drop the grounds in.
If you don't have a French press, simply use any container and a method of straining the grounds out.
Step 2: Start the Brew
The grounds will steep for 12-16 hours and need to be stirred a few times along the way. So whenever you pass your room temperature mix, just give it a stir.
Step 3: Press the Coffee
You can now chill this coffee in your fridge for up to 10 days. This will be your concentrated coffee that you will use to make iced coffee whenever you want.
Step 4: Make an Iced Coffee
Top off the drink with some water. This along with some of the melted ice will give you the right strength. Feel free to test your ratios until you're happy with it.
Add cream and/or sugar and stir.
